MEDICAID INFORMATION RELEASE MA05-21
 
TO:                 Home Health Providers
 
FROM:           Leslie Clement, Deputy Administrator
 
SUBJECT:     HOME HEALTH COST SETTLEMENT PROCESS
 
Due to Medicare’s change in reimbursement methodology to a Prospective Payment System (PPS) for Home Health providers on October 1, 2000, the Department is clarifying how the Medicare payment caps are applied.
 
Once Medicare pays on a prospective basis and does not apply caps to payments, no Medicare cap limitation will be applied to the Medicaid payments on your Medicaid cost settlement reports.
 
If you have any questions concerning the information contained in this release, please contact Amanda Chapman, Myers & Stauffer, at (208) 378-1400.
 
Thank you for your continued participation in the Idaho Medicaid Program.
